"Return to Suicide" by Allison Pollack AlexanderPublished by America HouseCopyright November 2001 ISBN:1-58851-223-1Rating: It was early in the 1900's when Addie was brought to her uncle Ira's house. Addie had been staying with the orphange when they found out where her uncle was living and told her she must live with him because the orphange was too full. During her stay with Ira, he was very mean to her. He was verbally abusive to her and locked the cabinets so she couldn't eat when she wanted. She had the same clothes to wear everyday and no shoes. He also sent her to the store everyday to get whisky. He just let the bottles pile up on the floor. One of the store owners in town, Eleanor, watched Addie get Ira's whisky and rush back to the house. One day, Eleanor gave Addie a new dress to wear. She was so happy to have something that was her own. When she wore it in front of her uncle, he tore the dress off of her and ripped it in two. He said they didn't need any charity. There were some young boys who worked in the field plowing, and saw Addie. The leader of the group wanted to have some fun, captured Addie and cornered her in the barn. There was one boy who was bigger than all the rest. His name was Tom. He saved Addie from the boys, and many more times throughout their short lives. When Tom's mother passed away, he left town. He returned six years later to find that Addie was now a young woman. Still wearing no shoes, and the same ratty clothes, they became close friends and lovers. She was still afraid of her uncle because if he found anyone near her, he would kill them. Sometimes people's lives take funny turns. If only Tom and Addie knew what was in store for them, would their lives have turned out differently? I thought this was an excellent story! Short and to the point, the author, Ms. Alexander, makes this story of two young lives very believable. It all flowed together nicely, without straying off, making it boring. I can't wait to read more of this author's work! by LISA Was this review helpful? Click Here and let us know.
